If you are looking for a nicer, friendlier, more interesting place to stay in the Lake District then you may as well give up right now because our stay here couldn't have been any better. There is little to really add about the stunning countryside of the Lake District where Summerhow House is set, except that this is the perfect base to explore it from.
The house itself is run by John and Janey, who are extremely pleasant hosts and really went out of their way to make sure we had a good time. The house has recently been renovated and you can really tell, because everything just oozes quality. The breakfast was sensational (made from quality local produce) and the service second to none.
I've stayed in a couple of bed and breakfasts now, and none of the others even begin to compare to this. At the end of the weekend we were informed that we were the first guests to have stayed here. It is almost tempting to not tell anyone about this place, because as soon as word gets out about exactly how nice Summerhow House is, it will be booked up for a very long time to come...
